South African Airways (SAA) is introducing a code-share agreement with United Airlines, its Star Alliance partner to the Americas
This will enable customers of both airlines to purchase tickets and earn miles to more destinations in Africa and Europe when booking travel on code-share flights between SAA and United.
“South African Airways is proud to partner with United Airlines in this code-share agreement as it is sure to expand our services and continue to provide our passengers with the highest standards of comfort and convenience,” said Nomfanelo Magwentshu, SAA General Manager Business Development.
South African Airways and United frequent fliers benefit from the code-share agreement by earning miles on each carrier’s flights, with award redemption beginning April 2, 2006. Mileage Plus members began accruing miles with South African Airways in November 2005.
